If you would like to PM the creek that your going to I will go and have a look other wise I'll just go to picnic ground No1 Creswick Creek and check the flow I believe it's at .6 at the moment.
It's raining here at Daylesford at the moment.
cheers DB

I was out at Slaty Campgrounds 1 and 2 yesterday. The water is still flowing in Slaty Creek although it has dropped 8-10 inches at least on its flow a month ago. None flowing in Mopoke Gully. Cheers, Vombat

Hi Madhatter,
There is good water flow at Picnic ground 1 and Picnic ground 3, water is flowing over the ford at No2 but not as good as the others.
Hope this helps the areas look good plenty of prospectors and campers out there today at all the areas.
Cheers db

G'day Simon90 welcome to PA.

Might be worth starting a new thread Simon90 this thread is for Creswick in Vic so pretty much all contributors want know the area related to your question.

Madhatter,

Hope you went ok today. Would have been a bit windy. Slaty really needs a good flood, flush and reworking of the alluvium.

I'll be heading out for a swing tomorrow.

Vombat
